Wherever You Go - Dee White

from the album Southern Gentleman (2019)

Every once in a while, I find myself listening in awe to a record's production.  Such is the case with Wherever You Go, the lead track from Dee White's forthcoming debut album.

This record manages to capture the sound of 1970's sun-drenched country in a way that recalls the best of The Ozark Mountain Daredevils.  The sound firmly takes you back to a time when having the windows down and cigarettes in the ashtray was expected.

Imagine yourself driving along a backroad in Alabama, stereo turned-up loud and this song on the radio.  To complete the scene, imagine the cutie-pie sitting next to you, their long hair flowing as their head bounces to the music.

This mastery of production comes from The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach and David R. Ferguson.  Ferguson's credits include a grammy award for sound engineering Johnny Cash's American Recordings.

The record's lazy day tone is perfectly suited for Dee White's vocals.  There is an intimacy in the vocals, almost as though he is singing the song on the front porch, unaware that anyone is listening.

Wherever you go, bring Dee White along for the ride.
